O Universe, if I have even the teeniest, tiniest bit of Mad Goddess Skillz to call upon, I would be pleased indeed if reality gave the whole sorry lot of 'em a right thumping and knocked the John 3:16 right out of 'em.

I think it's more likely that the majority are socks.

I'm seeing this elsewhere, as well. We'll see if there is a correlation somewhere, at some point, maybe.

One way to detect a possible sock is when a thread is necro'd by a theist, I seem to recall. Consider

RE: An Atheist who Found God
I blame the meteoric rise in social media in general. They muck about in facebook and get bored, and look for some fresh carpet to shit on.

I wouldn't say "deliberately arrogant", no.

But arrogant, nevertheless.

The entire idea is based on a premise that is by its nature arrogance at its pinnacle.

I find the username sanctimonious in the extreme.

This is a theist drive by.

I also think that other newbie, Charlie, is a theist in disguise. Wouldn't trust that poster for a second.
you do have some well honed skills there. Smile

That's kind of a big assumption, don't you think?

I try to give the benefit of the doubt, where I can.

Where I can.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

The notion that God wants to take the time to appear to one particular soul, that it might be saved from his wrath, so that one person can be especially empowered to witness for the religion...

It's the pinnacle of arrogance!

You're saying that your own soul (and empowerment to KNOW God is real during your lifetime) is worth God's time and effort more than tens of thousands of suffering and dying human beings, most of whom are little children.

Fuck you. Fuck your stupid, delusional arrogance that you would conceive of God in this way.

Exactly! What ever happened to faith being rewarded? Don't you have to accept God first just blindly without any evidence and then he shows himself but in little ways here and there? I mean it's rare when it's a full blown vision experience. Also they were such an angry hateful atheist before, now they know the true love of God and it's so great you guys!

If God couldn't find a good way to convince you he was real before by studying the Bible and investigating the religion, why did he resort to a vision experience? He knows you were a very logical and analytical person who loved to study so why not get to your heart that way? Can't be done, because it's just not logical so why not go the old divine vision route!

Would you be ok with someone you have good reasons to hate tricking your mind and "heart" to love them by influencing your senses to such a degree that it destroys your logic and reasoning? Giving you no choice? Overwhelming your senses with pure love light. Now your brain says this person is perfect, so good, so amazing, is that your own thoughts saying that or your new altered brain saying that?

It would be one thing to truly "find" God and to have come to that conclusion over years of study and witnessing many miracles and supernatural events but no, all it took was one profound vision, that God just granted for no real reason, out of nowhere...uhhh yeah pretty sure he just mind jacked you to appease his ego and you didn't find him, he just showed up uninvited, how rude.
OMG the ops god is like the purple man. Someone call Jessica Jones.

Happens every year around this time. I think they get points in Sunday School or something like that. Happens again around Easter. It's always fun.
